It’s Fourth of July weekend! Or it will be at least. And that means all of the art events will peter out over the next few days. But before then, there are a ton of group shows opening up. We’ve pulled some of the most promising ones from all over the city.
Tonight, you have a rare chance to see some films by Lois Weber, a nearly forgotten female filmmaker from the dawn of Hollywood. Wednesday brings an ambitious program by the Hunter East Harlem Gallery that will address the myriad problems with female incarceration. Thursday, Zwirner will be letting the lunatics run the asylum with a massive staff group show. Friday has a Bushwick exhibition that will probably be (like most Bushwick exhibitions) hit or miss. Then … things will go quiet. But, we’ve pulled some art/beach opportunities so you can see some work while you enjoy the holiday.
